Holiday Gift Guide - Simply Playing Review & Giveaway




In my house, we are big on fairy tales and day dreams. When we are playing make believe we see fairies and unicorns, and I have just as much fun as the kids. Every little girl should be a fairytale princess and very boy a knight in shining armor. Simply Playing is a wonderful way for both boys and girls imaginations to come alive.  They make adorable products that will whisk you  away into a magically world of make believe. No batteries required.



For our review, we received a few of the adorable products that are handcrafted by Simply Playing. The knitted crown is a wonderful alternative to the plastic ones you'll find in stores. It won't ever break and you don't have to worry about pieces coming off. It was stretchy enough that it fit both my baby and my ten year old. The magic wands will bring any fantasy games to life. It can be a staff or a wand. Your child can be a fairy of a princess. The possibilities are only as limited as their imaginations. And I think the little gnome is my favorite. He can be a magical sidekick that is safe even for small children because there are no eyes or other small pieces to fall off.




Each piece at Simply Playing is a beautiful, one of a kind, hand crafted work of art. You can choose from a variety of colors for the gnomes and crowns, and the wands come in hearts, butterflies, peace signs and more. She also has adorable hand knitted Waldrof Kitty Cats in pink and blue. If you are looking for a unique holiday gift that will open up a whole new world of imagination, than Simply Playing is the esty shop for you!
